CHU Wern Cui
Research Assistant


Wern Cui graduated with Bachelor of Science (Hons. in Biotechnology) from the University Malaysia Sabah (2012) and Master of Science (Molecular Biology) from University Putra Malaysia (2015). Her bachelor and master study had exposed her to techniques in advanced molecular biology and basic bioinformatics applications. Her current research focuses on role of stem cell paracrine functions in cartilage regeneration.


MOGAL Vishal
Research Assistant


Vishal Mogal received his M.S. (Pharm.) in Pharmaceutics from National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research-NIPER (Ahmedabad, India) where he worked on the Lipid-based nanocarriers particularly Solid Lipid Nanoparticles for controlled drug delivery. In 2011, he enrolled as a Ph.D. student  in School of Materials Science and Engineering, NTU and worked on Radical Based ‘On-demand’ Bioresorbable Soft Tissue Adhesives. His research interest includes degradable polymers, medical device development, transdermal & topical drug delivery systems, implant-soft tissue interface, light activated bioadhesives, surface functionalization of thin films, an effect of surface patterning on adhesion mechanism, drug eluting balloons, nanomaterials and hydrogels.
